7- Nintendo Shows off Virtual Boy (1995)

That mistake was the Virtual Boy, Nintendo's ill-conceived virtual reality console that gave gamers headaches and gave Nintendo its first and only console flop. At E3 1995, Yokoi was on the show floor demoing the soon-to-be-discontinued system, with the product and its producer being all but ignored while the attendees focused on the Nintendo 64. He left Nintendo the next year, and he died in a tragic accident a year later.
